Merck Mercuriadis is the “most disruptive force in the music business.” In 2018, with multi-Grammy winning Nile Rodgers, Merck co-founded Hipgnosis Song Fund – an investment company that has been buying up music catalogues of the world’s best-known artists. Merck is revolutionizing the music industry with the simple notion that “songs are an asset more reliable even than oil or gold” and turning tradition on its head – challenging labels and publishers to pay artists their value.
